What's the opportunity in Inter Parfums?

The stock seems fairly valued at the moment according to my valuation model. It’s trading around 1.96% above my intrinsic value, which means if you buy Inter Parfums today, you’d be paying a relatively reasonable price for it. And if you believe the company’s true value is $73.15, then there isn’t really any room for the share price grow beyond what it’s currently trading. Furthermore, Inter Parfums’s low beta implies that the stock is less volatile than the wider market.

Can we expect growth from Inter Parfums?

NasdaqGS:IPAR Past and Future Earnings, April 10th 2019

Investors looking for growth in their portfolio may want to consider the prospects of a company before buying its shares. Although value investors would argue that it’s the intrinsic value relative to the price that matter the most, a more compelling investment thesis would be high growth potential at a cheap price. Inter Parfums’s earnings over the next few years are expected to increase by 30%, indicating a highly optimistic future ahead. This should lead to more robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.

What this means for you:

Are you a shareholder? IPAR’s optimistic future growth appears to have been factored into the current share price, with shares trading around its fair value. However, there are also other important factors which we haven’t considered today, such as the track record of its management team. Have these factors changed since the last time you looked at the stock? Will you have enough conviction to buy should the price fluctuates below the true value?

Are you a potential investor? If you’ve been keeping tabs on IPAR, now may not be the most advantageous time to buy, given it is trading around its fair value. However, the positive outlook is encouraging for the company, which means it’s worth further examining other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to take advantage of the next price drop.
